By now, you probably know what the Funeral Notices website offers you. A vast archive of death notices and memoriums placed in hundreds of newspapers across the United Kingdom in the last 15+ years, on which you can leave photos, messages and light candles to pay tribute to the deceased, as well as leave donations in their memory to charity.
But did you also know that we offer ‘keepsakes’ for any notices placed with us both online and over the phone? And what do these keepsakes entail? In today’s blog I’m going to take a closer look at this popular service offered by Funeral Notices.
A keepsake is defined as: “a small item kept in memory of the person who gave it or originally owned it.” Simply put, our keepsake service allows you to have a laminated copy of a death notice or memorium you placed with Funeral Notices sent to you in a presentation card for display.
They are offered on every call when booking over the phone, as well as available to purchase booking over the internet. There is no limit on how many you can purchase, and the price is £6 each.
There’s many reasons a keepsake is a worthwhile purchase. First and foremost, it is a constant reminder of the person who passed away and what they meant to you. The presentation card which the keepsake is sent in allows it to be put on display, which many like to do in a location such as on a windowsill or mantelpiece.
Many of our customers will do a yearly memorium for a loved one’s passing or birthday (sometimes both) with a different poem or photograph each time, and like to ‘collect’ the keepsakes each year and display them all together.
The keepsakes also make a nice gift to other family members who would like to keep a presentable copy of the notice which went in the paper. Our sister site - Family Notices
- also offers keepsakes for happier occasions such as birthdays, weddings and graduations, and many people enjoy to purchase multiple keepsakes for family and friends to commemorate these special events.
